if these tax extenders have to be dealt with by the end of the year and in the fiscal cliff negotiations, what are the options for congress right now? on december, what is it, 6 today? guest: to be honest, these are kind of an after thought at this point because often as i said just all of these are extended for a year or two at a time. they talk about trying to make the list shorter but if they have to, if it's like december 29 and they need to pass something, all they have to do is pass everything for a year and it won't cost so much. but get to this after they figure out the bigger question. host: but they can do it in one bill? they can say tax extenders and list the different -- guest: exactly. it will go in the big fiscal compromise and you won't a lot about it unless someone says, wait, they passed a reduction deal and they probably will. tax ex tenders were the in the tarp, the financial bailout. so they usually get snuck into these big billless. host: right now what's the status of these so-called tax extenders? guest: so the finance committee, the senate finance committee passed a bi
